WEST WING IN HIGH FALLS ON 30 ACRES

Accord Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 full bath, sleeps two

Ninety miles from the George Washington Bridge and NYC, and on a hill above the Rondout Creek in High Falls, is a one bedroom, 850 square foot apartment that overlooks the Mohonk Preserve and Mountain House on the Shawangunk Ridge. Although attached by a 20 foot hallway to the main house which is the owner's residence, this rental is otherwise completely private, with two entrances. There is no kitchen on site, but an an under-the-counter refrigerator and microwave are available for guests and the cupboard is simply stocked with a few utensils, and there is an electric coffee pot and tea kettle. Although technically a Bed and Breakfast, in that the owners live on site, this rental space is totally reserved for guests of the West Wing only. The outdoor areas have beautiful views of the ridge, a walking path to a secluded spot on the creek, and 3 acres under cultivation for flowers, fruits, berries, vegetables and medicinal and culinary herbs. The property is located just a couple of miles from several trailheads into the Mohonk Preserve and is close to the famous Trapps rock climbing area and Minnewaska State Park. High Falls and Stone Ridge are just 4 miles from the door where you will find all the necessities including farmers' markets, the High Falls Food Co-op, a number of restaurants, a pharmacy, a liquor store with a great selection, a full grocery store, antiques, gifts, and gas stations. Everything you need for a great country experience!

Guests enter the West Wing through the double Eastlake stained glass doors into the private hallway lined with glass windows. This opens into an expansive room with 22 foot ceilings, a large Moroccan lantern over a huge Iranian carpet on polished concrete floors with radiant heat. One wall is lined with bookcases, another with a sideboard stocked with a teakettle, coffee machine, and an under-the-counter refrigerator. A flat screen TV is available along with HBO, network channels, Netflix and ITunes movie rental. A spiral staircase leads up to an open loft with a 14 foot long and 48' wide built in window seat/bed. Seating in the living area accommodates three in an upholstered club chair from the 1940's, a leather library chairs and more seating or lounging on the teak daybed. A ceiling fan and AC keep the West Wing comfortable in summer. The red bedroom is decked out with an antique queen-size bed, Moroccan curtains and an en suite bathroom with separate shower and bath tub. Parking is available outside the front entrance. The lawns, garden and small farm areas circle the house on all sides.

About Sterrett Smith

I am a painter and my husband is a writer and runs a graduate program in NYC. We needed space to work and found this beautiful hilltop with creek access. We put up 2 barns from the early 1800s and started establishing gardens and an edible landscape. I also have two rentals just across the creek, VRBO #379093 and #381193. I love to build, save old structures and keep my hands dirty and busy when not in the studio. High Falls is a great location for an easy commute into the metropolitan area while being worlds away in a true Hudson Valley paradise.

Sterrett Smith purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Sterrett Smith chose Accord

This property is located in a geologically unique area adjacent to 25,000 acres of protected land that is home to the Mohonk Preserve, Mohonk Mountain House, Minnewaska State Park and many reservoirs within the watershed of NYC. The villages are historic, the food is fresh, and the countryside infectious. And it's an easy drive to so many great locations along the Hudson River, not to mention into NYC.

We stayed three nights in the West Wing and didn't want to leave! Loved eating breakfast outside the French doors, overlooking the beautiful gardens - and being visited by a hummingbird. Plenty of room to relax & read at the end of the day, and we enjoyed a cozy night's sleep and awakening to sunshine. We missed not having a bit more of a kitchen but managed pretty well w/ Sterritt's help. And we enjoyed probably our best meal of the trip at Jeannette's, a friend :& neighbor who offers a private dinner, prepared with care & passion. We'd definitely stay again in the West Wing when returning to the Hudson Valley.

Exquisite Everything

  • 5 of 5
Sterrett and her West Wing are unique gems. The land on which she and her husband built their house opens over an undisturbed distant view of the Mohonk Mountain House of the Shanwangunk Ridge. Not another house in sight. Just as pictured. Add the rustling of leaves in the wind, and birds busy in their own uninterrupted world. The architecture and furnishings of the West Wing are comprised of equally simple elements to spectacular effect. An over-sized Moroccan lantern enchants the dark night with luminous, colorful patterns. Bold color choices for the walls brings the dwelling the life and offset arresting paintings, some of which are Sterrett's own work. Clearly, I'm reaching for my highest praise! We loved our time at the Garrett, including conversations with Sterrett that excited us about exploring our own interests in the Catskills. We cancelled agenda items for a few days just to try on the feeling of actually living in such a dwelling! We left feeling relaxed and infused with new life.

Nature Lover's Paradise

Nature Lover's Paradise

All the prior reviews describe this lovely retreat to a tee. Our stay was in the early spring so the lilac bushes outside the bedroom window wafted throughout the rooms – it was heaven!! We watched the mother & father robins tend their nest in the vegetation next to our private patio – not to mention the never ending call of the cardinal, red-wing blackbirds and so many other wild birds! We very rarely saw another living soul so it was like we had our own cottage on a very unique hilltop in the countryside!! Not a decibel of human noise/activity was ever experienced. At night, be sure to turn on the overhead Moroccan lantern in the main room and enjoy the wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable patterns on the ceiling cast by the lanterns patterns – just 1 of the many enjoyable features of this lovely cottage and so splendidly presented to us by our gracious and kind hosts.

Beautiful, clean, private, and absolutely lovely.

My husband and I came here for a 2-day romantic getaway right after our wedding (a "mini-moon," we called it). It was perfect for us, a private romantic getaway with breathtaking views of the mountains, a pond right outside, private access to the nearby creek, friendly neighbors, and most of all, a really attentive and gracious host. Sterrett sent us an email about a week before our arrival that was thoroughly detailed with EVERYTHING to do in the area, from the oldest food co-op in the country to a lady down the street who used to work in restaurants/catering and now hosts private dinners in her kitchen. (Side note: My hubby and I had an amazing romantic dinner for 2, special ordered to our dietary restrictions (he's vegan AND allergic to lots of things), which we never would have known about had Sterrett not given us an extensive list of things to try in the area.) The room itself is almost more of an apartment, except without a kitchen. It has a beautiful, enormous living room, loft area, bedroom with really comfy bed, and a gorgeous bathroom with jacuzzi! It's ornately decorated, pristine, gorgeous, SO clean, WOW! We fell in love the moment we walked in. The living area has a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker and hot pot to boil water, as well as a fully stocked cupboard with plates, utensils, cups etc., so we brought our own food for breakfast/lunch and managed just fine. We left our dirty dishes on a table outside the front door, and they were always returned very quickly. We can't say enough good things about this place. The only thing I'd "warn" people about (though it's not a warning in the least) is that we found it in an online search for B&B's in the area, but it doesn't serve breakfast. It's a place to stay. But that shouldn't deter you from this gorgeous place. We can't wait to go back and bring the dog next time!

Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5
I spent 2 delightful nights at the West Wing. I was looking for a quiet place to stay before heading north to take an art class. I could not have picked a better spot. First, of all, it is a beautiful location. Second, the accommodations are first rate. Everything was very tasteful and artfully decorated. It is very private and quiet. It would be a perfect hideaway for someone who wants to write or read and enjoy nature. It is also close to beautiful small towns and good restaurants for someone who wants to get out and about. I loved my stay and would love to return someday.
